In 1580, during the Sengoku Period of Warring States, the Kaga Rebel Group made their last stand here against the forces of Oda Nobunaga. The Torigoe Castle ruin is located on a mountain between the Tedori and Dainichi Rivers, with another older castle ruin, the Futoge Castle ruin, located on the opposide side of the Dainichi River. The location is highly strategic, allowing you to clearly see up and down the valleys of both rivers. Nowadays this creates a great viewpoint, and allows a clear sight of the terrain and its connection with water.
